From our Friends at The Jack™!Jack Daniel’s 32nd annual World Championship Invitational Barbeque – Same Great Event, New Date for 2020
As many of you can attest, the Jack Daniel’s Annual World Championship Invitational Barbeque – or simply The Jack™ as it’s known in the world of competition barbecue – is widely considered the world’s most prestigious barbeque competition where teams from around the globe smoke, season and sear their way to a chance to be named the Grand Champion and a $25,000 prize. Annually featuring more than 100 teams representing all 50 states and countries across the globe, The Jack™ transforms Lynchburg, home of the Jack Daniel Distillery, into the barbecue capital of the world. While the event has annually occurred on the fourth Saturday in October, it’s no secret that we’ve been battling some tough weather conditions over the last few years. After giving it a lot of consideration and going back to look at past years’ weather, we want you to be the first to know that the 32nd annual event will take place on a new date - October 10 - in 2020. We think moving the date up will make the entire event even more enjoyable for our competitors and the many folks from around the world who come to celebrate this amazing event.
